Bumps in the horse’s back happen! Why? …Wolff's Law- developed by the German Anatomist/Surgeon Julius Wolff (1836–1902) bone in a healthy person or animal will adapt to the loads it is placed under. If loading on a particular bone increases, the bone will remodel itself over time to become stronger to resist that sort of loading. The internal architecture of the trabeculae undergoes adaptive changes, followed by secondary changes to the external cortical portion of the bone perhaps becoming thicker as a result.
Is your horse shying at things on one side more than another? Are they willing to go by an object without too much fanfare but shy at it, like it startles them? That behavior is not likely from fear but Cranial Compression.
Do horses refuse jumps they usually try and instead try to stare at it by tipping their head sideways? Your horse isn’t refusing because they are all of a sudden afraid to jump, they are having a hard time gauging the clearance due to Cranial Compresion.
Hoof growth: The hoof will show stress when the horse is out of balance. Abscesses, Navicular, Laminitis, Upright Pasterns that you think you need injections for, walking on the balls of their hooves when before they had hoof growth, all these symptoms can be helped!
